Saddam's defence uses comparison to US Abu Ghraib abuses as rhetorical device

Today the cross-examination of "Witness A" will be reported. After "Witness A" describes the appalling conditions of her detention under Saddam's regime, the defence will will seize the opportunity to make a comparison to Abu Ghraib under US command
"I agree that things in Abu Ghraib were, until recently, bad, but did they use dogs on you? Did they take photographs?" said one defense attorney, alluding to U.S. troops' abuse of Iraqi detainees at the prison.

"No," she replied.
